Hilton Honors is rolling out a third round of status extensions, benefiting members across the globe – even those who haven't travelled since the last extension landed in their account.
All Hilton Honors members will have their current status carried forward until March 31 2023.
This includes members who may have expected to lose their status in early 2022, by failing to reach the normally-required number of qualifying nights, stays or Base Points.
Travelling throughout 2022 can also help push that status even further forward into 2024, by reaching the following requirements by December 31 2022:
- Hilton Honors Silver: Complete 3 stays, 7 nights, or earn 17,500 Base Points
- Hilton Honors Gold: Notch up 14 stays, 28 nights, or 52,500 Base Points
- Hilton Honors Diamond: Make 21 stays, spend 42 nights, or earn 84,000 Base Points
The requirements above apply both to members retaining their existing tier, and travellers hoping to move up to the next level.
To help with either goal, all 'nights' earned by Hilton Honors members throughout 2021 will have those carried forwards into 2022 – so if you've earned 10 nights this year, you'll start 2022 with 10 in the bank.
More fresh benefits for Hilton Honors members
The expiry of all Hilton Honors points is also being pushed to at least December 31 2022, ensuring those who haven't travelled recently don't lose their rewards.
Normally, Hilton Honors points expire when the member hasn't earned or spent points in the previous 12 months.
Speaking of points, if you reach 30 nights each year, you'll earn 10,000 bonus points – plus 10,000 points more after every 10 subsequent nights, as your Hilton Milestone Bonus.
The chain's most frequently-travelled members can also continue gifting Gold or Diamond status to a friend or family member, but with slightly higher requirements than in 2021.
From 2022, road warriors who reach 40 nights (previously 30) can gift Hilton Honors Gold.
Those who hit 70 nights in a single year will upgrade that companion status to Diamond (previously 60 nights).
These requirements are still below the normal thresholds, with Gold normally gifted after 60 nights, and Diamond after 100 nights.
